Windows 7: BSOD a few hours after starting laptop for the las few days

05 Mar 2016   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I've copied the whole DOS folder on the usb. It contains two subfolders, bios and kbc, and dosflash.bat file.

The bios subfolder contains two .exe files, one .rom file, one .wph file and a bios.bat file.

kbc folder has 12 files, some .txt, two .exe and other files.

So is the .rom file i should input when asked? It has the same name as the one designed for Windows flash but different file extension, the windows one being exe.

EDIT: I've found this guide specifically for ACER laptops

How to create DOS bootable disk - post #64.
1) Make sure battery is full for notebook & power cord is plugged in.
2) Boot with DOS bootable disk
3) At command prompt, enter this command:-
phlash16.exe /x /s /mode=3 bios-filename
Note: Change bios-filename with your BIOS filename, e.g. JV50T109.wph.
4) Wait until it finish & reboot itself or follow the on-screen instruction. DO NOT interrupt the process.

I have a phlash16.exe, and also a wph file. However, I will think a bit about this one. Even though is still a good laptop (i5 6 GB ram) if the motherboard crashes the cost of replacing might be too high considering the age and the overall usage.

Thanks for helping.
